. you've heard that the first quarter was tough. probably payroll tax impacted more than anything else. and small business is -- and big business for that matter is totally the flux with the obama care act and what it all means. and business is looking at part-time, that you've got to keep people under 30 hours. they don't want to employ more than 50 people. and nobody really knows how this thing is going to work. now, as far as the japanese yen, every major manufacturer in the world has made a strategic decision to produce where they sell. no manufacturer can deal with the volatility in exchange rates. and if you look at where the japanese are today compared to 10, 20 years ago, there is no comparison with let's say 80% produced in north america. so the exchange rate has been dramatically reduced as a factor in our business. and at the moment, i don't see any impact. >> okay, mike, $42. we've been friends a long time. you couldn't tell me at four bucks that that was something i should -- actually, we're not allowed to do it, anyway, but you couldn't have mentioned that back in 2008 or

talk to in the medical device field is worried about the affordable care act, the tax on medical device makers. how significant is that in your view? >> i think there's a couple ways. first of all, the fact that more patients are going to get access we think is a good thing. it's unacceptable that patients are either uninsured or underinsure. tax, yes, it has an impact. we've got to make sure it's done in a responsible and reasonable way. overall we're convinced that it's going to continue to be about innovation, about strong customer partnerships. and really when you think about now, our medical device business, particularly our orthopedics business, our size and scale, the growth opportunities here and very much so in emerging markets. so, for example, all surgery is really just about trauma surgery in emerging markets. it's not as planned. as a result what we're seeing is significantly better growth rates in some of those places. >> i love that emerging markets part of the story. because you just look at the growth numbers and you figure out what the story is. but are you going to ha
that are primarily sales tax and transit fares and it is two-thirds of the money. and the down side of course is that has been some what of a necessity because of the lack of investment and sacramento and washington and the good news is that when you raise your own money, and you can write your own rules and that is something that we have done to the benefit and not done a lot of highways in the area and you tear them down more than you build them and we need to invest in the transit and we need to invest in the bicycle modes and when we generate a lot of money we have a better time doing that when we deal with the federal or the state rule book. and we tend to divide this money in this planning exercise, into two different pots, pretty much just to cut to the chase because a lot of the money about 80 percent of the money that we call committed is committed to the specific purposes by law and long standing policy as most of the money that you can see in this slide is main nens of the existing system and 90 percent of this money is going to maintain our existing infrastructure that is filling

th is tax day, where we pay our taxes. april 19th, friday, is the anniversary both of the oklahoma city bombing and also the waco raid. none of these are connected, right, but could any one of those lead you in the direction of a domestic group? most certainly. you can be sure investigators are looking at all those potential connections to see in what direction when you pull it all together the facts lead them. >> paul, although we don't know yet, very quickly, how soon would you expect to have a much clearer idea? >> it's difficult to tell how the investigation is going to go. but the forensics will be absolutely key. maybe there will be some sort of claim of responsibility, maybe somebody will be brought into custody that can shed light on what happened. but there's a huge effort right now under way, piers. >> i want to bring in tammi hughes on the phone who just crossed the finish line when the explosions went off. a terrifying experience for you. >> just awful. >> how are you? tell me what you saw and how you felt about it. >> well, i had just come across the finish line and i

be another one of those. but you have had the payroll tax increase go into effect. you've had sequestration go into effect. you have no growth in people's incomes. that was the more disappointing numbers out of the last unemployment insurance report. and if people don't have money, they can't spend money. and finally, we're being affected in the slowdown in europe in particular and the slowdown in the emerging markets. our export growth has fallen to about zero at the moment because there isn't demand overseas for our products. so it feels like a little bit of a soft spot, but we'll see. >> how much of this is consumer confidence, do you think? >> consumer confidence definitely plays a role. but consumers right now don't have the money to spend. and if they went out and spent, they'd be borrowing money. i don't think -- i think it's a more fundamental problem in a way than consumer confidence. >> steve, my long wait yesterday trying to get up to new york, in the lounge was tim geithner waiting for the flight, as well. i asked him, we're seeing these good signs in the economy, how much of it
she brought the tax rate from 83 to 40% and dealt with the labor problem as katty said and she made enormous progress. and, by the way, everyone who blames her for the crisis in 2008, you know, in between margaret thatcher and 2008 there were three or four british prime ministers and then now david cameron. none of them reversed the system. as someone said a minute ago, everybody bought into the system and i think -- so i think her legacy is incredibly positive. the last point i would make she had the right idea about europe and why britain should fit into europe. >> she was right about britain. all these years later it cost her her job but she was right about europe. >> we will be following the funeral service under way right now throughout the morning. martin bashir, thank you. we will see you at 3:00 eastern time on msnbc. >> thank you, martin. appreciate it. >>> coming up next, the gun background check bill is on shaky ground as it heads to a vote today in the senate. will it break down its chances of passing? next. you're watching "morning joe," brewed by starbucks. at tyco int

where you get this increase in volatility after tax time. and you see all the companies revising their earning forecast to temporary expectations. and so typically in the next month or two we'll have some external macro surprise that will get everyone concerned again. it's been a very consistent pattern that we do well in the fall and the early spring and then cool off and get more volatile. >> rick santelli, markets all waiting for these earnings reports this week. in the meantime among your markets, gold has bounced big today. the dollar is still flirting with 100 yen. what are you watching? what are the benchmarks you're keeping an eye on this week? >> well, you know what, i think the biggest benchmark that i'm going to pay attention to is the dax stock index in germany. it's down about 1.75% on the year. last week not only were eurozone car sales, registrations off, but germany was off in particular. i think keep it simple. i think as those auto numbers deteriorate, it's just going to exaggerate all the other weaker economies. and when you get the imf admitting that austerity
a phenomenal house in houston, no taxes, great unemployment, we've got a great house in coronado, small but fabulous, and better unemployment, 5%. okay? but i have to tell you, how do you overlook the fact that one house is 4,400 square feet in houston and the other house is only 1,000 square feet. >> that's a huge difference. >> yeah. >> so between the english manor or the cozy cottage, the winner is? >> the english manor. >> because of the size? >> exactly, it's livability. really, a thousand square feet is tough to live in. people do it, i've done it, but it's tough. >> real estate really coming back. >> this has all been real estate porn all day. >> real estate porn, all right. we will leave it there. i don't know exactly what that means, real estate porn. do you want to explain that real quick? >> people love to watch real estate. >> they do, that i get. >> and porn. >> yeah, that's one of the most successful things on the internet right now. >> exactly. always a fabulous guest and winner, dolly lenz. >>> up next, make or break for apple. the technology giant out any minute now. we

towards a foreign or domestic. it could be either one. patriots day, also tax day. that could've got people up in arms. it could be a foreign type. so you leave all the options, all the possibilities open and let the evidence and the cctv cameras and the witnesses will bring you to your suspects. >> chief, how extensive is the camera network in boston? obviously, when something happens in london you can -- >> dial it up. >> you can dial it up pretty quick. there are a few streets in london that aren't on close circuit tv. do you know what the situation is in boston? >> yeah, my sense is most american cities, new york is going that route. there's nothing like london and belfast. those two cities have complete integrated system and it's almost nothing without it being captured on cctv cameras. as a matter of fact, back in 2005 in london, they were able to follow those guys from outside of london all the way into london to the subways and to the bus. so there the cctv cameras were absolutely invaluable in the investigation. my sense is boston -- they will have some cctv cameras. filming
happened in waco. one more quick note about the timing. yesterday was tax day for everyone in this country but here in boston it was patriots day which commemorates the battles of lexington and concord, the start of the u.s. revolutionary war. big day not only for the country but boston. >> what was supposed to be a celebration turned out differently. let's go back to new york and savannah. >> matt on monday evening president obama spoke about this tragedy offering his thoughts and prayers to the city and vowing justice to those involved. i happened to sit down with him shortly before these explosions and we talked about a number of things in the headlines. we began with the gun legislation before congress that many say is now hanging by a thread. >> i think we've got a good chance of seeing it pass if members of congress are listening to the american people so let's just take the example of background checks. 90% of americans think that we should make it tougher for criminals or people with serious mental illnesses to obtain a gun, and so the notion that congress would defy the overwhelmi
the boston marathon, if you assume there's some connection there, patron's day, tax day, then you assume that if there is a connection, we have no information that there is, but if there were, then you would assume it's all government and which case, the government officials, perhaps at multiple levels of government not just the federal government, that they might be-- they should certainly be wary. i know if i was back in office i'd tell my staff, let's make sure we're talking with the sergeant of arms, the state police. >> what do you make of the fact it's democrats and republicans getting it. >> i think it's across the board anti-government. >> megyn: okay, it could be an anti-government type in general or it could be a jihadist type, it could be a lone whacko, we just don't know at this point. but you can see tensions are running high right now on capitol hill, as you can understand. thank you very much for being here, appreciate it, sir. >> we'll continue to follow that as we get new information coming in in connection with the boston marathon bombing. the boston globe, we have not
openly said that we should have high taxes and we should have a register of guns ryan to believe that on the record congressman and senators democrats who said that's what they wanted. that's exactly what the nra did say. but i think the president, they missed the boat on this. and they let down the families of newtown. and the way they did it was they went for a piece of legislation that would not have affected a school shooting. this school shooting, if this bill would have been in effect would not have in h. any impact on that school shooting. that's where the president lost. when dianne feinstein came out and said i have got a bill that's been in my desk drawer for years as she put it, that's why they lost because they didn't write a bill that was anything but propaganda for antigun. if they would have written a bill that would have helped keep kids safe at schools, the president probably could have had a bipartisan victory. >> megyn: really? >> they were so obsessed with being antigun. >> megyn: really, alan? i'm not taking a position on this one way or the other. but the ad
